Am I the only one who recalls the white knuckle story back in 2007 when a man from Atlanta with drug-resistant TB flew to Europe to be married? Everyone was sweating bullets that the contagion would spread into our country when he came back. Now we hear that there are confirmed cases brought in by the so-called “Refugee children” with this virulent form. Fox reported that it will cost up to $300,000 to treat each case of the resistant type. Where is the worry and concern? Is that why no one is allowed to visit the centers? First a memory from 2007.
Quarantined TB patient: ‘I hope they forgive me’ June, 2007
DENVER — While authorities try to determine how an Atlanta lawyer was able to avoid detection while traveling to Europe with a highly drug-resistant form of tuberculosis, the man apologized to his fellow plane passengers in an interview broadcast Friday. Speaker is expected to remain in the hospital in isolation and taking multiple antibiotics for two to six months, at a cost of up to $350,000.
Speaker said he, his doctors and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention all knew he had TB before he flew to Europe for his wedding and honeymoon last month. But he said he was advised that he wasn’t contagious or a danger to anyone. Officials said they would rather he didn’t fly but no one ordered him not to, he said.

Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, told WND that it’s not suitcases, clothes or the like – it’s the highly infectious cases of drug-resistant and lethal tuberculosis that are walking across the Mexican border.

Report: Illegal Immigrant Children Have Lice So Bad ‘They Can Be Seen Crawling Down’ Their Faces (Video)
Todd Starnes told Sean Hannity on FOX News tonight that the illegal immigrant children held at Lackland Air Force base in Oklahoma are bringing diseases into America. The children have tuberculosis, scabies and lice so bad you can see them running down their faces.
“It’s one giant emergency room. They tell me tuberculosis has become a very dangerous issue there. Nurses say the number of children representing symptoms of tuberculosis is ‘simply staggering.’ Spitting up blood, chest pains, constant coughing. There are at least three confirmed cases for the illegals in Austin, Texas… The federal government is covering up the threat of the health crisis. They say the kids have scabies. They also say they have chicken pox. And lice so severe they can be seen crawling down the faces of the children.“
Thank you, Barack Obama
